  • This is the first greatest hits CD that I ever bought from Rhino records and I’m glad that they released this Greatest Hits CD on Rhino Records cause the sound quality is really good and the liner notes is very informative, it’s everything that a Dokken fan needs to know, what got me into Dokken was hearing In My Dreams on the radio when I was getting ready to go to bed and I was packing up to go to Long Beach, Washington, I think that Dokken guitarist George Lynch is one of metal’s underrated guitar players of all time and he can really play and I think that Dokken was one of the best hair metal bands of all time too cause they had good songwriting skills as well, this CD has 16 cuts from 1983-95 and 14 of it was from 1983-88 and we do get to have one Don Dokken solo cut called Mirror Mirror which is quite a good song and I’m surprised that the song didn’t make it big, plus I had no idea that George Lynch formed a new band called Lynch Mob either.Here are my ratings for each track.Breaking the Chains: Dokken’s first known song off of their debut album and it is the title track but this song is a classic, who can forget the video when George Lynch starts breaking the chains during the guitar solo part? 10/10Paris is Burning (live): This live track is actually off of Dokken’s debut album and it’s awesome, I like the opening part of the song the best. 10/10Into the Fire: Now we enter the Tooth and Nail album and this song is a classic, excellent chorus. 10/10Just Got Lucky: This is one of Dokken’s heavier songs but this song isn’t quite one of my favorites. 8/10Alone Again: This song was Dokken’s biggest hit and I’m surprised that they didn’t score a Top 40 hit on the Billboard charts. 10/10Tooth and Nail: Not to be confused with Foreigner’s version off of the Agent Provecatuer album which came out earlier that year. 7/10The Hunter: Now we enter the Under Lock and Key album which contains this classic song. 10/10In My Dreams: This is my favorite song by Dokken and this song is awesome, it should’ve been in the Top 40 but oh well, at least that it did well on the Modern Rock tracks. 10/10It’s Not Love: Another standout and this song reminds me of early 1999 when I heard this song on the Youth Gone Wild CD Vol. 2. 10/10Dream Warriors: I think that this is the best song off of the Back for the Attack album. 10/10Burning Like a Flame: I’m surprised that this song didn’t make it on the Beast For the East live album which came out a year earlier but this isn’t one of my favorite songs. 7/10Heaven Sent: Not one of the better songs for Dokken although this song is a bit more ballad like. 6/10Mr. Scary: An instrumental tune done by George Lynch and this is a really cool song. 10/10Walk Away: Probably one of Dokken’s most softest songs and this was off of the Beast From the East live album and this song doesn’t do it for me. 6/10Mirror Mirror: This is a really good song by Dokken’s solo album and this song is on par with the earlier classics. 10/10Too High to Fly: The longest song on this album (which clocks in at over 7 minutes) and this song isn’t that great. 6/10
